Carol and Alina play soccer for a local college team. Based on anecdotal evidence, they think that there is a difference in a player’s success rate of taking penalty kicks with their dominant foot compared to their non-dominant foot. They would like to test this hypothesis with an experiment. Carol arranges for each of the 11 starting players on her team to take ten penalty kicks with their dominant foot and ten penalty kicks with their non dominant foot and records the data. Using the same data values, describe two distributions that would be more supportive of the hypothesis.

a. Suppose a sample of 200 entrepreneurs will be taken to learn about the most important qualities of entrepreneurs. Show the sampling distribution of \(\overline{p}\) where \(\overline{p}\) is the sample proportion of entrepreneurs whose first startup was at 29 years of age or less.

b. Suppose a sample of 200 entrepreneurs will be taken to learn about the most important qualities of entrepreneurs. Show the sampling distribution of \(\overline{p}\) where \(\overline{p}\) is now the sample proportion of entrepreneurs whose first startup was at 30 years of age or more.

c. Are the standard errors of the sampling distributions different in parts (a) and (b)?

Consider the two samples of data from the McKenzie School. The numbers represent the time in seconds that it took each child to cover a distance of 50 meters. Girls’ Times: 8.3, 8.6, 9.5, 9.5, 9.6, 9.8, 9.9, 9.9, 10.0, 10.0, 10.0, 10.1, 10.3, 10.5 Boys’ Times: 7.9, 8.0, 8.2, 8.2, 8.4, 8.6, 8.8, 9.1, 9.3, 9.5, 9.8, 9.8, 10.0, 10.1, 10.3. Based on the sample means, do you conclude that the distributions of times from the boys’ population and girls’ population are different? Explain.
